Why is my asparagus flowering?
Correspondingly, can you eat flowering asparagus?
Asparagus can be used as an edible hedge, backdrop to flowers or shrubs, or a visual barrier. The ferns turn yellow in fall and should be cut back to the ground in winter.
Also, how do you get rid of asparagus? Immediately after cutting it, apply herbicide to the cut section of the stems using a squirt bottle or a paint brush. For the best results, the herbicide should have a concentration of 8 percent triclopyr. The plant will absorb the herbicide through its cut stems, which will then kill the underground roots.
One may also ask, should you let your asparagus go to seed?
Asparagus does not go to seed every year. Your harvest should end when the next spears come out scraggly and thin. There is no correlation between the two (harvest & seed). I'm not sure how you could stop bloom and seed set.
What does an asparagus flower look like?
Male and female asparagus plants produce similar flowers, both being small, greenish-white to yellow in color, bell-shaped, and occurring singly or in clusters of two or three at leaf junctions.
